Open Path ignores default file mgr setting

Post by Jerry » Sun Jul 07, 2013 6:21 pm

I use XYplorer as my default file manager and Everything is an indispensable tool that I use with it. When I double click on a folder in the result list's Name column, Everything properly uses the Windows default file manager setting and I get the path opened in a tab in my running XYplorer instance. But if I double click on the path in the Path column (or right click on a folder in the Name column and select Open Path), it always opens the path in Windows Explorer, which I don't want at all.

Please make the open path function use the Windows default file manager setting.

Jerry points out that my post http://forum.voidtools.com/viewtopic.ph ... 7395#p7395 is an exact duplicate of his request. What a coincidence - and I'm sorry I didn't find this myself. Anyway, nagan kindly explained a fix, and I have added a reply there showing actual usage.

And I suggested in that thread, an alternative to nagan's solution, here.
